Pink Buttons and Bows Card Blog Hop


Welcome to our blog hop today!!!  Its Lynne's granddaughter, Lily's, first birthday and what better way to celebrate than with a little help from her friends and by having a party!  A beautiful baby girl with all pink buttons and bows.  We will be celebrating her first birthday using the color theme pink with a dash of buttons and bows not to mention a splash of bling.

Sit back, grab a cupcake and punch and enjoy Lily's first birthday.  If you just happened upon my blog by mistake, I want you to get your big girl shoes and panties on and start at the beginning which is Lynne at Her Craftiness.  SEW, if you came from Kimberly'’s blog at KP Kr8tions Bringing Memories to Life, then you are in the right place.

For our blog candy, we are going to be giving away a pink package with buttons, bows, and, of course with a bit of splash of bling and Stickles.  You can become eligible just by leaving a comment on each baby step along the way and becoming a new follower if you sew desire!!  How easy is that!!!!

For my project, I went back and forth about what kind of card to make.  I finally decided on a Diamond Fold Card.  I also decided to use Close to My Heart's Lucy paper since it's so pink and "pastelly".    I also used my Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut out the cupcake, butterflies and diagonal frame.  Finally, though you can't see it very well, I did use the cupcake stamp from the stamps sets that come with the Art Philosophy bundle.

Diagonal frame - p. 33, B3, decorative layer, < square2 > at 3 1/4"
Cupcake - p. 70,  E10, shift < cupcake > at 2 1/2"
Cupcake holder - p. 70, E10, shift, layer, < cupcake > at 2 1/2"
Butterflies - p. 41, C1, shift < Bttrfly1 > at 3/4"

Thanks for stopping by and Happy First Birthday Lily!  Your next stop along the way is Jackie at JackRabbit Scrappin.
